EMSA is getting last-minute things done for the Tulsa State Fair.

Instead of ambulances, they'll have golf carts.

"Multiple response carts, golf carts that carry patients," said Jason Whitlow with EMSA.

He said EMSA has a first aid station inside the fairgrounds.

"And then on top of that we have our own dispatch area," he said.

With thousands expected visit the fair, "we basically set up a whole new response system inside the fair grounds for the fair," he said.

Even if there is a separate EMSA dispatch, if there's a medical emergency you can still call 911, it will go to the city and they will transfer the call.

Otherwise he says they get calls from the sheriff's department and security at the fair. EMSA also has its own radio channel designated for just the fair.
